Do you enjoy making, mending and woodworking in the outdoors? Do you have time and practical skills? Are there any unwanted tools and equipment you have lying around that you would like to see put to use for the community? Then come along to Men in Sheds.

Men in Sheds are currently looking to expand the tools available to them. As part of our mission to reduce, reuse and recycle, we would love to hear from you if you have any of the following lying around unused and would be happy to donate them to us:

  • Sash clamps – any size if interest, but particularly 48”
  • Wire wool
  • Set of allen keys of differing sizes – looking for both metric and imperial
  • Files
  • Rasps
  • Dust masks
  • A ground sheet or large covering for floors when painting
  • Sand paper

Please get in touch with Erin on if you would like to donate any of the above items.

In 2020 we will be working on the Farnham Mayor’s project, a platform to surround the pond at space2grow, and building a new larger shed! If you have projects serving the community which you could use Farnham Men in Sheds help on please do get in touch with us.

Farnham Maltings is working with space2grow to run Farnham Men in Sheds. This is an opportunity for anyone with practical and organisational skills to get involved in improving the look and feel of the town by undertaking small community projects from a brand-new custom-made shed in central Farnham. We are building a small group of volunteers who will respond to requests from community groups, schools, the town council and others to undertake make and repair projects.

The group meets every Tuesday, on a drop-in basis, in the beautiful grounds of space2grow, next to Bishop’s Meadow.

If you would like more information about the group or to donate tools please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Due to popularity of Men in Sheds we are currently looking into the creation of a new time slot. Whilst we do this, we are operating a waiting list for anyone interested in joining. Please email Erin at with your name, contact details and any wood working experience you have. We will be in touch when we have more information.

This is a free, self-managed group supported by Farnham Maltings as part of our community development work.

space2grow is located just off the south-west corner of St. Andrews Church Yard. As you approach from Lower Church Lane, keep the church on your right, and follow the path that leads round a corner between two brick walls. There is a sign to Bishop’s Meadow. At the end of the path you’ll find a large wooden door. This is the entrance to space2grow.
